Worm count kit (FEC) suitable for farm animals- including but not limited to: sheep, goats, poultry, cattle, alpacas, pigs etc.
No dogs or cats please- grazing animals only!
This pack contains everything you need to take and return a worm count sample.
Worm counts are now used as the basis for parasite control programmes. By testing your animal for the presence of common worms, you avoid giving unnecessary wormers, and help prevent the growing issue of wormer chemical resistance.
Recently given a wormer? This test can check whether your wormer worked correctly (10-14+ days after given).
Testing a flock of animals? Why not send us blended samples? A rough guide is 1 pot per every 10 animals as a minimum. Take random poo samples from different animals to fill the pots, and the result will give you a rough guide to the worm status of the flock as a whole.
1 sample bag to place poopot in
1 optional rubber glove
1 prepaid return envelope
Information sheet with full instructions
All postage is included, and your return envelope can be posted in any UK mail box.
